Kimono Thank You

This is a quick Thank You card. The kimono is folded using origami 6x6 paper. The Vanilla background is embossed. Punch those corners with the ticket corner punch - and how easy is that? I did decide to add a small piece of Gold with a gold knot on the waist (the obi?). Stamp the image in Lovely Lilac, punch using the word window and back with Real; red using the Modern Label Punch. The kimono is attached with dimensionals to the card.

A closer view:
There are more cards that can be made since I folded about 12 of these kimonos.

This is what was used to make this card:
(1) 5-1/2 x 8-1/4" Lovely Lilac CS (retired), scored @ 4-1/4 on the 8-1/2" side
(1) 4" x 5-1/4" Real Red CS

(1) 3-3/4 x 5 Very Vanilla CS
(1) folded Kimono (made with 6x6 Origami paper

Thank you for stopping by today........................
